360 isnt a publicly released build, it was a leak.

The update servers only offer public -> public build OTAs.

Any rom that was packed into a PKG but not released on the OTA server publicly is likely a hotfix that they dont wanna bother releasing to the general public.

Default Thank you all

Hello,

IT WAS EASY! Thanks to the huge resources available on the forums, I was EASILY able to upgrade my Dell Streak 5 to Android 2.3.3.

For other seekers of information, I am summarising my efforts; let me re-emphasise that all the information and questions I had were already present in this very thread; it's just that it's such a lot of information that one has to wade patiently through it.

I started with Baseband GAUSB1A135100-EU, which translates into "pkg version" 351, and region 00 (see last 5 digits before hyphen).

I wanted to upgrade to 407 region 14. Since there was a change in region, I first installed 350, which is region 14. I don't think there would have been any problem installing 407 directly over 351, but some posters have mentioned that not installing a correct region baseband initially has caused the soft button LEDs to flash continuously.

To be on the safe side, I first installed 350 (region 14) using the instructions for flashing from the XDA Dell Streak 5 wiki. All tools and files are also downloaded from links in the XDA Streak 5 wiki. I copied the "stock" (original) pkg for 350 into the SD card, and renamed it "update.pkg". I then downloaded and installed 350 recovery using "fastboot", then booted into recovery (did not allow phone to boot normally) and chose to update via update.pkg on sdcard.

One reboot later, I was successfully running 350 region 14. I then went to Settings-About phone-Software update, and the phone detected a new update (407). Installing it was as easy as downloading it on the phone and touching the completed download notification in the phone.

Now using 2.3.3 GAUSB1A1406214-EU. Very smooth, and definitely faster than 351.

Learning points:
  • It's all out there. You gotta look. Hard.
  • Some say "Update.pkg". That didn't work for me. I had to specifically name it "update.pkg" (lowercase)
  • I used linux, and Fastboot+ADB package for linux. Very easy to use. But one MUST go through the wiki first.

Thank you all posters who displayed patience with my posts.

Cheers,

When I run the update it falls over during the verification of the update:

Andriod System Recovery Utility - GAUSB1A135100

etc etc

Verifying update package...
Installing update...
assert failed: getprop("ro.product.fota.model") == "KT" || getprop("ro.product.fota.model") == ""
E:Error in /sdcard/update.pkg.dec
(Status 7)

I have got that same message before the flash, after the flash and tried a factory reset then flash, still the same message. Any ideas?
I had the same message. the recovery file is not right. I had 2.2.1 from Roggers canada unlocked, what I did factory reset then I downloaded both file from the post #10 The Manii
but My dell streak couldn`t connect on computer because windows couldn`t find the driver for it so I download fastboot file (Setting up fastboot for windows) from:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/wiki...Flashing_Guide
but still was not installing the driver, then I manually installed the driver by >>> hardware>>properties>> change setting>> driver>>update browser>>browse my computer for driver software and showed the unzipped folder of fastboot and after this I could connect my streak to the computer on fastboot mod. then I used (MultiRecoveryFlasher.v.0.5.1) which is available on:
http://www.itsmyiphoneworld.com/uploaded-files by Mary Wiekel,(under he file Android boot Flahser). I did the same things she does on youtube here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5DEs...70BtwOpRGDQ%3D
the only thing is after unzipping the (MultiRecoveryFlasher.v.0.5.1) I replaced the recovery file on the folder: StreakMod-Recovery by the recovery file: stock (407 recovery.img) which I had downloaded before. then I followed the instructions for flashing as Mary says on youtube. I did it 3 times and finally it took the file and installed the recovery. after rebooting I reboot into recovery mode and able to install the 407 update.pkg which I changed the name to update.pkg on sd card and that`s it!! it worked for me. the system is much more stable and better. just after installing for the first time u need to change the Korean language to English by pushing the bottom on right down part of the screen as the others mentioned. Thanks everyone. I didn`t use superuser.zip or 350 recovery file. They might work. this was the way I took and works good for me.
I didn`t have any kind of Rom or flashing just unlocked roggers. this is for Android Canadian roggers 2.2.1 version.
sorry took long and might be repeated many parts but I am not an expert and I read a lot to do this I hope it work for canadian roggers. no more crap roggers files there!!!

I have the same problem! It's just one of the little (very little) problems that affect the devices (in my opinion)...

Default Recovery Flashing issues

Hey guys, thanks for all the hard work and thought out responses on this forum. Got a couple of issues with regards to upgrading to 2.3

-----First issue-----
tried flashing 406 then 407 recovery. Went through the process like normal. Phone rebooted and I ran the update package and got the FOTA Mismatch. I know why, The flashing of 406 or 407 never when through. I read earlier in the forums that some people were having problems flashing the 350 recovery so I didn't try it. I flashed the recovery files and got the successful prompt 6 times and my phone still didn't flash the recovery.

-----Second issue-----
Used the QDL tool to upgrade my streak from 1.6 to 2.2. Then tried to flash the different recovery files, including 350 to streak. Everything says its successful. But its not. On top of that, when I try to go into recovery, and select the update pkg option, my screen displays a black screen and hangs. Not even attempting the update where it was at least attempting it the first time.

B4 anyone comments on me being on 1.6, I just received a new streak from dell because my old one was crapping out. Got it under warranty.i've been on here through the forums all day trying to find a clue to whats happening. I'm not new to flashing and fastboot. Spent a couple of hours digging through some info on here and the web. I've come up short. I'm willing to bet its something simple. My gut tells me it has partly something to do with using the qdl tool as far as the hanging goes.

Android: 2.2
Baseband: 30500-US
Build number 10688

Default Recovery Flashing issues

I also tried oldwolfkkk suggestion as well. Flashed it multiple times and still got nothing. Trying to find a way to revert it back to stock US 1.6. Everything I've tried so far has failed.


Got It working Guys!
Amazing what a little more research for a couple more hours can do!
